Donation Refund Policy

Variety – the Children’s Charity of Queensland accepts all donations in good faith. Whilst we understand that everyone has different preferences regarding donations and that sometimes it is not convenient to give, we will not refund a donation that has been knowingly and voluntarily given to us.

Once you have donated to Variety Queensland, we cannot give refunds if you change your mind. For this reason that we ask that you make your decision to donate to us carefully. Please note:

  • We will refund if there was an error made by Variety Queensland, one of our representatives or our financial institution
  • We will refund if the donation was made by a vulnerable person
  • We may refund if the donor entered the wrong amount
  • We may refund if there are exceptional circumstances

Should an error in the donation amount be detected and a request for a refund made after 60 days have expired, Variety Queensland regrets that we are unable to issue a refund.

What happens next?

Variety Queensland will review your refund request and let you know the outcome.

If your refund is approved, your original tax receipt becomes void and a new receipt will be issued (where applicable).
